France boosts security after spate of brutal attacks

Municipal police patrol the Christmas market in the French city of Nantes on December 23, 2014, a day after a man rammed into shoppers with his carThe French government stepped up security nationwide Tuesday following three bloody attacks in as many days, which killed one man and injured 25. While the motives behind the incidents — a knife attack on police and two cars driven into passers-by — remain unclear, the violence has jarred nerves after repeated jihadist threats against France over its fight against Islamic extremism. Prime Minister Manuel Valls stressed that the three incidents were “distinct” and urged the French to keep calm, while assuring that security would be heightened. The violence began on Saturday when a man was shot dead after attempting to enter a police station in the central town of Joue-les-Tours while shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
